All of them are almost gone now. What a legacy they have left behind. Here is but one act of heroism that day,

edit- And today this generation of hero's and heroines continues in the long twilight struggle we find ourselves in,

Remember them.

Here are some photos to balance things out (as if that is really possible)

My hubby's B-day, too :-)

Had an uncle who was shot up on D Day. He’s gone now, like most of his generation.

Here’s what was on the radio in the 40s. Right now we’re inclined perhaps to listen to faster, jazzier stuff from that era, but they weren’t shy about waxing sentimental then.

(I’m not really sure that Crazy Fingers could have been written by folks who hadn’t absorbed this kind of sound growing up. Think of the “life may be sweeter/lady lullaby” section.)

Here's another slow sentimental one with lyrics that really tug at your heart when you think of what the people who listened to it went through. London in the mid 40s. Color pics by a soldier.

Then the troops came home to the women who were waiting and made little hippie babies. The acid tests were to D-Day like, well, like now is to '89/'90. Kinda makes me feel bad about how intolerant the 60s generation was to its not-so-old elders for a while there. The flag-burning and cultural rejection must have felt like such a painful slap in the face. But I do think that the idealism and sincerity of the 60s had at least a bit to do with the fact that the folks who raised them had tackled evil in a great and horribly serious adventure and actually won. Changing the world WOULD seem possible, wouldn't it?

Good day for Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller et al and maybe some old 40s movies later ...

I share the day with your hubby AR, and currently I'm riding the groove on the excellent 'Dancin' on this TDIH http://www.archive.org/details/gd1970-06-06.sbd.miller.86951.sbeok.flac16 Being taken out to a Caribbean restaurant this evening. (Mmm)

Sounds good! Hubby just got back from 10 days shooting in the field (too hot and dusty for me to go with a teenager, thank you, so I'd chickened out this time) ... he's too tired to go out, but brought bundles of fresh lychees and a a huge sack of raw mangoes, so the household has been on a chutney making spree. (mmmmmm) Happy B-Day to you too!!!

Got a chutnet recipe to share? Or something else that is a good example of the local fare? We have a couple of really great markets near here to get asian produce.

Well, folks don't really use recipes. Although I could write one down ... new thread: Cooking With the Forum! I'll tell you a handy-dandy Secret Ingredient, though, if you can find it. Check out Indian (not East Asian) markets for a spice called timur. It's brown and looks like peppercorns. If you crush a little and add it to a tomato chutney (or salsa), it's just amazing. It's hard to describe; almost more of a flavor enhancer than a spice.

Another really good Secret Ingredient to keep on hand is imli (tamarind paste.) You can make it into a chutney for dipping or add it to veggies ... yum yum. That's pretty easy to find in Indian stores.

Thanks Micah, so far so good. The 1970 show was a fine way to spend the morning.
